The present study extends and encompasses a previous work on the control of thrust-propelled vehicles which focused on vehicles subjected to environmental reaction forces that are reduced to their drag component, as in the case of spherical bodies. Lift forces associated with other body shapes, like winged aerial vehicles, modifies and complicates the control problem significantly. This paper shows the existence of a generic set of drag-and-lift models for which it is possible to recast the… CONTINUE READING
